THATFYX FEATURING MISTER BARKSDALE
As one of St. Louis's newest up and coming Artist/Producers, Mr.

Barksdale has been a catalyst for invoking nothing but great music, through innovative melodies, and soul piercing rhythms. Moonlighting as the Music Director for The Hawthorne Headhunters, keyboardist for SUPERHEROKiLLER, & co-producer of STL's music pioneer Black Spade,

Mr. Barksdale's magnum opus, THATFYX, is the offshoot of the genius of his musical mind. Barksdales musical talent is a unique blend of lineage, raw & intuitive talent along with a high level of professionalism, honesty, vision & will. His ability to improvise his keyboard playing and connect with other sounds is most impressive to me. He has the ear... that's the true sign of not just a beatmaker but an across the board Music Producer.."

-Rayfield Mickles [SCGMediaworks/Solid City LLC]

It's not often you find such a raw talent w/ such character & humility. Mr. Barksdale is by far one of STL's secrets emerging undeniably, who prides himself on a key thing; [Trust the Process].

NEW ORIGINAL PLAY

Dreaming in Black & White

Summer, 1963.  Danville, Virginia.  Here and elsewhere in the South, civil rights protests are dividing the races.  Half a world away, a war is heating up that’ll also have folks choosing sides.  Less ominous but vying for attention are a looming presidential election and a down-to-the-wire race for the National League pennant.  

Against this backdrop, we meet Sonny – white, bitter, suffering the effects of rheumatic heart disease – who hopes to live long enough to see his son play major league baseball;  Pearlene – black and poor – who dreams of seeing her troubled son employed;  Sister – Sonny’s live-in, care-giving sister – who seeks a life free of Sonny’s manipulation;  Lucille – a wacky friend and confidant prone to visions – who’s finding her way in a changing South; and Charlie – Lucille’s husband – who fears change.

Dreams and fears collide when Pearlene is hired to help care for Sonny who’s chased away dozens of other would-be caretakers.   The pair form a bond based on a their mutual interest in baseball and their dreams for their sons.  Too bad the bond is severely tested by a series of twists, turns and reversals.  Along the way, enemies are revealed and defeated, relationships are ended and begun, and dreams are considered and reconciled.
